I Find It Hard to Let Go

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 493 People

    It's been almost a year,

    and I still find it so difficult to let go of my ex. Keeping him in my life is only hurting me I know it. I am so confused that it's so hard to focus on everything else. Ah, I need to cry tonight... It's been an exhausting and rough day.

    2 years ago, i noticed a guy from our school.

    he wasn't my classmate and i just got really interested in him because he was so quiet and unique. His name was Jude. but i stopped liking him when a close friend of mine(Geraldine) said she likes him. In that year, that close friend of mine fell in love with someone else then...

    Sometimes I Grieve...

    People commonly talk about weaning breastfed babies and how the mother finally gets her body back to herself.  But no-one ever talks about the grieving process associated with giving up breastfeeding. I haven't breastfed for around 7 or 8 years but every now and again I ...

    I find it hard to let go of what makes me happy

    for the moment, but kills me emotionally long-term.

    Every time I'm laughing

    or dancing or doing whatever I'm doing there's a pause. There's always a pause, a pause I can't explain. Like for a moment everything freezes and I zone out and my minds with him idk why I don't control it like i could not be thinking about him at all but there's always that...

    I'm pretty bad at this & can become a bit crazy

    if I'm ignored.lol Good to know, right? I don't open up that easily & tell my real feelings & let someone in "just like that." So when I do give someone that level of trust & put my whole heart into it...then it ends for whatever reason..(.I usually won't end it which maybe...

    I really don't know how

    or if I could let things go. It's one of those times where I feel like everything just happened yesterday. So many things on my mind, from 2 months to over 10 years ago and it all hurts so much.

    I just had my first "it's not you,

    it's me" conversation. When in reality the lines are so blurred I'm not sure what it was. What I do know, is that something that creates too much inner turmoil has got to go. It hurts so bad to walk away from someone you really care about. I so hate this right now, but it's...

    Soppy Mother

    I'm a terribly soppy mother.  I cried buckets when my last child went to school.  There are so many things that I wish would never end: - my children kissing and cuddling me in public - giving me 'spantaneous' homemade gifts, especially drawings and mud creations...

    A cool gentle breeze of late August flows in

    the bedroom window. The soft tan satin curtain billows along as her spirit enters. The haunting memories force me awake, releasing me from such terrible nightmares. I sit up in my bed and I look around the pitch black room thinking I can see. I can sense something's not right so...
